At AP Class, we know what it takes to break new ground and conquer the unknown. We were the first class society to venture offshore, certifying the world’s first mobile offshore drilling unit in 1958 and classing the first jackup, semisubmersible, drillship, FPSO, TLP and spar.
AP Class classification services are constantly evolving to meet the needs of changing demands in offshore operations. We fund research initiatives around the world and use the results to pioneer efforts to maximize efficiency and environmental sustainability in offshore operations.
Our offshore services include independent, third-party verification for integrated software quality management, subsea systems and a broad spectrum of associated technologies that support long-term energy sustainability and advance our mission to promote the security of life, property and our natural environment.
